Thank you Beverly,
Lets hope so when I get them to the Christmas markets!! It's a very mixed clientelle here as I am based in the country so I have clients who don't want well dressed just tough and cheap and then some that are more chic and like something they can't find anywhere else.
What I do find here in France is that I am apreciated more as an Artisan, customers like the fact that they have met the person that designed and made the item ( It's the same with the statues) and that most of what I make is a one off. In the Uk I found for me that it was harder to get a good price for handmade items. It did seem to be an attitude well if you made it I could to so why so expensive!
Fingers crossed with the boys outfits. My customers buy more easily for girls than boys. Aprons are going very well at the moment, and they are both girl and boy design. It's not a cliché that the French still love cooking.
